Actor Yoshi Sudarso returns for his second appearance on Power Rangers HyperForce. Originally appearing as the immortal caveman superhero Koda from Power Rangers Dino Charge, he now solidifies his place among the new world-saving cast of this live roleplaying game show on Twitch. He rejoins his brother Peter Sudarso (Preston, the current Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel) who now plays Red Ranger Marv in this streaming series.
It’s quite early, but the show in its current incarnation seems as yet undisturbed by the recent ripples of news about toymaker Bandai. After a long collaborative relationship with Saban Brands as they worked together to make the Power Rangers a household name, the two companies have parted ways, making room for Hasbro to slide into place as the next curator of the merchandising empire. We have yet to see the full scope of Hasbro’s effect, if any, on the greater franchise, from television, to comics, to streamed offerings like HyperForce. We’ll have to stay tuned for more as the list of possibilities for the PR brand suddenly makes its monster grow.
Power Rangers HyperForce streams live every Tuesday at 6PM PT from HyperRPG.
